Question about 1997 Buick Century

1 Answer

How do I get the radio to stay on after turning off the ignition?

When I first got the car the radio would stay on for a while after the motor was shut off. I think I may have did something to change the setting and don't know how to get it back.

The setting are in your owners manual. usually there is a menu on the radio that has settings. either by holding in one of the set station buttons....or by holding in the tuning buttons...

How is 2001 Mustang GT parasitic draw on battery related somehow to FU 27 and FU39? Battery drains overnight but I cannot narrow down a faulty component.


Allfordmustangs.com has an article if you Web search your car with fuse 27 and 32 as part of the search. It blames the GEM as part of the problem(wiper) and also points out that the radio has several power feeds. Fuse 27 is hot all the time, but fuse 32 is only hot in ACC or Run. So as long as you can test fuse 32 to be hot in only Acc or Run, it should not drain the battery in Off position. You might want to test the ignition switch to verify it is really turned off.

The all mustangs article had different symptoms, as you did not indicate whether the fuses popped.

The wiper motor is suppose to derail and turn off. If you can unplug the wiper motor overnight and the battery stays up, you would know that it is either the wiper motor or wiper control. The radio is on the other fuse circuit. But whether the radio can drain a battery in a short time, you need to measure draw, but if the fuse pops, the battery should stay up. Again, disconnecting a circuit like a radio, and then having the battery stay up, would point to the radio circuit being at fault.

Radio will stay on after I turn off my truck.


This sounds like an ignition switch problem.
The accessory is staying on after it should be off.

Doors wont lock when you turn on ignition.And the radio doesn't stay on when you turn the ignition off.


Your radio is connected to ignition instead of accesories. Not all car locking sytems lock doors with ignition. Check with the supplier if known or with nistallers.
